Established in October 2016, the UNSW Scientia Education Academy (SEA) recognises our most outstanding educators for their leadership and contributions to enriching education, and gives them a platform to showcase and facilitate educational excellence at UNSW and beyond.
Appointed from across all UNSW faculties, Scientia Education Fellows share a genuine passion to inspire students to achieve their absolute best, both during the studies and in their long-term careers.
What is the purpose of the Academy? Hear from the Academy's Inaugural Director (2016-2018), Professor Chris Tisdell
The Fellows champion educational excellence by:
- enhancing the profile and quality of teaching and learning within the University and beyond
- providing inspirational leadership and vision with contributions to educational scholarship and policy
- promoting improvements in teaching practice through individual and group projects
- modelling collegial approaches to mentoring within the education community.
